Primer on radiator concern?

Is it harmful to spray primer on your radiator to black it out?

Will it cause an issue with airflow?

This is in relation to the CDC performance grille install.

There are special paints that won't interfere with the heat exchange. A friend used this once. No issues.

I would be careful. A little over spray probably wont hurt it.

I cant find anything on what other people used with their install. I bought a can of this Krylon High Heat. High Heat - | Krylon

Would anyone say this is ideal for it? It says for use on metal and aluminium.

Hey guys I decided not to spray anything on it and to invest in this mesh grille insert from customcargrilles.com customcargrills mobile - Mesh Grill Kit for 13-14 Ford Mustang GT500

I think this will add a nice performance style look to it along with fortifying the radiators condition.

But I must say it doesn't look too bad with it open and unpainted on a black car!
